Epson has released a new 17-inch SureColor P5070 printer which the company says will increase colour gamut and higher-density blacks with improved dust and static control for reduced maintenance and increased durability and reliability.
The SureColor P5070 uses 200ml UltraChrome HDX 10-colour ink cartridges, which incorporate newly developed core pigments. Epson claims the new Black inks are 1.5 times denser than the previous generation and deliver a wider contrast ratio, with improved resin encapsulation technology for superior gloss uniformity and optically clearer, sharper images.
The SureColor P5070 supports a 10-channel PrecisionCore TFP printhead that includes a new ink-repellent surface coating, along with improved dust and static control for reduced nozzle clogging and maintenance, and it supports printless nozzle checks for time, production and resource efficiency.
According to Epson, the SureColor auto-switches between high capacity front paper cassette and roll media feeders. It includes a power-driven roll media spindle and roll printing up to 100 feet and an internal high-speed single pass rotary cutter.
Craig Heckenberg general manager of Epson Australia says, “The SureColor P5070 is the latest addition to the Epson SureColor product line, which is bringing Epson’s photographic technology to the next level. Sitting above the popular Epson SureColor SC-P800 in the range, the SureColor P5070 packs all of the SureColor printing technology into a 17-inch desktop model, providing photographers and graphic designers with the best imaging technology has to offer.”
Other features of this printer include print permanence, high print speeds with 360 nozzles per colour channel, Epson precision dot screening algorithm, borderless printing, optional spectroproofer and LCD control panel. The printer is available with pricing from $2,995.
